Simply fly into Minneapolis St. Paul (MSP) and enjoy our beautiful state on your first Mini-t camping trip!
Once you arrive in Minnesota and receive the 2-hour orientation of your campervan, we have 3 convenient campgrounds within 25 miles of our facility. Minneopa State Park, 9 miles away: offers camping, hiking, a 2-tiered waterfall, and an American Bison Herd. Land of Memories, 12 miles away: a beautiful campground where the MN River and Blue Earth River Merge. Flandrau State Park, 22 miles away: the Big Cottonwood River meanders through the park, camping, hiking and a sand bottom swimming area.
The state of Minnesota’s nickname "Land of 10,000 Lakes" is fitting, as there are 11,842 Minnesota lakes. You can visit Itasca State Park, Minnesota’s oldest state park, home of the headwaters of the Mississippi River.
If you travel North you will be able to visit Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes of North America and the world’s largest freshwater lake by surface area. The Northshore Hwy 61 drive from Duluth to the Canadian border has many breath-taking views. Highlights of this 148-mile-long drive along Lake Superior include the Aerial lift bridge in Duluth where you can see working ships come to port, Glensheen Mansion, tugboats, lighthouses, numerous State Parks, campgrounds, waterfalls and if fortunate enough you may find your own souvenir, a Lake Superior agate.
Minnesota also has a long through hike, the Superior Hiking Trail, a 310-mile-long hike from Duluth to the Canadian border. You can arrange in advance to hike sections or the entire trail.
Minnesota is also home to Voyaguers National Park, Grand Portage National Monument and Sandstone National Monument. Please do some research and plan ahead when visiting the national parks!
We are fortunate in Minnesota to be home to the largest population of nesting bald eagles in the United States outside of Alaska. The National Eagle Center in Wabasha, alongside the Mississippi River, is a great place to visit. There you can see bald eagles and learn everything about them.
If you head west through South Dakota, we are only hours away from the Corn Palace, Badlands National Park and Mt Rushmore. And how could we not mention….Wall Drug.
The Mini-T camping starter kit includes a single burner butane stove, butane fuel, shore power cord, magnetic screens and a foldable portable toilet to aid you in your first camping trip. Many of our customers either bring or mail ahead other camping items that suit their needs such as a sleeping bag, pillow, etc.
